NT9420 : Cairn on north side of Hedgehope Hill

taken 12 years ago, near to Langleeford, Northumberland, England

Cairn on north side of Hedgehope Hill
Cairn on north side of Hedgehope Hill
Looking down on the Harthope valley and the isolated farm of Langleeford. The small cairn is probably a marker for the route of the permissive footpath to the hill top.

The straight line of the Harthope valley is clear in this photo - the burn follows the line of a major fault which cuts through the central granite and outer andesite volcanic rocks of the Cheviot Hills from south-west to north-east. It is thought that the valley formed the boundary between the Middle and Eastern Marches during the days of the Border raiders LinkExternal link
